Breitbart News Caught Using Pic of Cavaliers Victory Parade to Pump Trump Rally

Donald Trump propaganda site Breitbart News, formerly the gold standard in conservative news, was desperately trying to pump the appearance of a Trump campaign rally in Jacksonville, Florida.

So much so, that Breitbart (which really should change its name to “Trumpbart” in order to shield the name of the late, great Tea Party activist Andrew Breitbart) posted a picture of the massive crowd of the Cleveland Cavalier’s NBA championship victory parade as an indication of how well-attended a Donald Trump campaign rally was in Jacksonville, Florida.

No, really.

How embarrassing.

Breitbart has since updated the story with what looks like an authentic picture of Trump speaking at the rally in Florida. The following message has been added to the story: UPDATE: A photograph that was incorrectly attributed on social media to the rally in Jacksonville has been removed.
